About Su Friedrich

Su Friedrich earned a B.A. in Art and Art History in 1975. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, and is currently a Professor in the Center for the Creative and Performing Arts at Princeton University. “Su Friedrich’s films regularly combine elements of narrative, documentary, and experimental styles of film-making and often focus on the roles of women, family, and homosexuality in contemporary America.[3] From the onset of her career in the late 1970s, Su Friedrich has been a leading figure in avant-garde filmmaking and a pivotal force in the establishment of Queer Cinema. Her work has radicalized film form and content by incorporating a feminist perspective and issues of lesbian identity and by creating a remarkable and innovative synthesis of experimental, narrative and documentary genres.” – Wikipedia.
